Summer Fun - Cocktail anyone?

Handmade card cocktail bon voyage card using stampin up

 Our new challenge at MAWTT - Moving Along With The Times - is Summer Fun or Summer Colours.  This is such a fun and easy challenge I hope you'll join in the fun. 

I used the Stampin' Up! Nothing's Better Than stamp set and spotlighted this tasty looking cocktail to create a Happy Holiday card.   I shaped some Pansy Petals DSP using the Basic Border dies and layered it onto a piece of Granny Apple Green card.  I've embossed a white circle and matted that onto a Magenta Madness die cut scalloped circle and added an untied bow of gold thread.  I've also embossed a design in white to add to the idea of summer foliage although it is actually a Christmas stamp from new set Words of Cheer.  I love to get more than just Christmas use from my seasonal stamp sets.  

I've played about with words from the sentiments in the same set to create a wish for a great holiday with some bling.  

I coloured what I think looks a little like a Tequila Sunrise cocktail with Stampin' Blends and have sat dreaming of a sunny holiday ever since. 

I hope to see your card over on the MAWTT challenge blog at some point this month.  You can visit the blog here.

Keep safe and keep stamping  and best wishes for a fabulous holiday if you are escaping.  

Hugs Zoe xx
